Great job! I used it this week to introduce 5 new players and it was a success!
It's amazing how a DM can be surprised. In the cellar, one of the players (who had never played) used the spell command and paralyzed Sildar, then tied him up and said he would release only if he stopped fighting ... LOL.
The next event with the stalled oxen I replaced the trap with a small 1HP snake hanging from a tree branch that startled them. One player used speak to animals and the conversation with the oxen gave us a good laugh until the end of the session.
